Ford struck back against the popular VQ Statesman and Caprice range with the NC/DC LTD facelift, featuring the long-awaited return of a V8.

Suspension and steering modifications brought significantly improved handling, while clear front indicators, a new grille and a subtle tail-light alteration mark the NC.
